January Sale! It is "make me an offer" time on tarantulas. I may not always say yes but it is worth asking! (really depends how much I have paid for them). Just drop me an email, tell me which tarantula/tarantulas you would like and how much you would like to pay. Remember once the reduction appears on the website you will need to order quickly or someone else may bag the bargain! (the price will only be reduced for one day so please don't ask unless you are ready to buy)

  • Giant Black Congo Millipede (Unknown species) Adult/Sub-adult

Common Name: Giant Black African Millipede
Scientific Name: Unknown species

Size: Adult/Sub-adult
Status: Wild caught
Country of origin: Congo


Food: Fruit, vegetables, leaf litter, rotten wood

A large, robust, stocky millipede, jet black in colour (up to 18cm long). They have a shiny body, are most attractive and tend not to burrow away out of sight as many other millipedes do!

How I keep mine

I keep these millipedes in a plastic box but a fish tank would work just as well (I buy the boxes from Wilko or Tesco and make air holes in the lid with a soldering iron, a great little tool for burning the right size holes through plastic). I am using peat or coir on the base and adding leaf litter (Oak, Beech or other hardwoods) and pieces of rotten wood. Some millipedes seem to eat just the decaying leaves and wood but I find that the Giant Cameroon Black millipedes enjoy a little fruit/vegetables, especially apple, banana and cucumber.  Warmth and humidity are important. I use a small heat mat and make sure there is not too much ventilation. If you are housing the millipedes in a fish tank you may need to cover some of the air holes with cling film so that the cage does not dry out. I rarely mist my millipedes as I find they get enough moisture from the leaf litter and food.
